Inauguration of the giant zipline
For several years now, developing summer activities has been a wish of Mont SUTTON. It is easy to understand when you take a look around at the ever-present nature that surrounds us, the richness of it all and those breathtaking views and landscapes; it’s easy to dream big dreams!
Well good news, one big dream becomes reality this summer! We are happy to announce the opening of the longest, the steepest and most impressive zipline in the Eastern Townships!
The longest and most impressive zipline in the Eastern Townships
The most anticipated of the summer activities is the new giant zipline. In addition to mountain biking, hiking, chairlift rides and camping at the summit, it will be a springboard that will confirm Mont SUTTON’s position as a staple four-season outdoor destination in the Eastern Townships, in Quebec and in Eastern North America.
Building the longest zipline in the region with one of the steepest inclines in Quebec was a major undertaking and required an important work site that lasted almost eight months. By the fall of 2020, designers and employees were already hard at work putting in place the foundations for the impressive start, mid-station and finish towers.
This spring, as soon as the snow melted, the work began anew. Several hours of manpower and several helicopter hauls were required to complete this major project. Tons of beams and zipline material were transported from the foot of the mountain to two of the tower locations. All of this was done with the utmost respect for the environment, minimizing the impact on the mountain’s appearance. Check out our “making of” Flickr gallery.
It’s a “one of a kind” in Quebec, it will be distinct by its steep incline, its system, its more than one kilometre-long course and its impressive infrastructure designed to harmonize with the mountain’s natural surroundings.
This will be a unique activity in the region and in Quebec
Without a doubt, anticipation runs high at Mont SUTTON as the installation of the imposing infrastructure for the new giant zipline is complete. This major project will allow thrill seekers to careen down the mountain in a different way! Your adventure will start with a chairlift ride to the altitude of 680 m. Once at this summit, you will be able to enjoy the magnificent view of the Eastern Townships landscape. Then, after this moment of contemplation move on to the action from the top of the zipline’s impressive launching tower.
This first section of the new giant zipline is one kilometer long, offering a breathtaking incline and view! After your long descent through the canopy, another 400 m descent on a second zipline, takes you back to the base of the mountain. Once this second section is completed, adrenaline seekers will have covered a total of 1400 m of astonishing travel through the air!
A colorful experience in a natural setting and enveloping environment awaits nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts and thrill seekers!
This new project aligns itself completely with the values of Mont SUTTON, hat has at the centre of its priorities that of offering an environment and experiences where the surpassing of oneself is accomplished within amazing nature settings!
Simply by its design and its impressive size, you will fall under the charm of our giant zipline… in short, whether you are a participant or a spectator, the show and the atmosphere will be wild! This is an activity you cannot miss when visiting the region!
